I'm back!

It's been months since my last post, in which I hinted at a big project that was a work in progress. Well, I'm thrilled to report that it's now completed and ready for a grand unveiling.

Introducing baby Catrin.

She arrived in August and is absolutely beautiful and a complete joy.

I'm afraid I didn't get on very well with pregnancy - I suffered from severe oedema (swelling) which saw my feet expand from a size 5 to a mens size 9, meaning I had to wear mens flip flops to shuffle around in for most of the summer. The swelling affected my hands and wrists as well, causing carpal tunnel syndrome which meant I couldn't knit for pretty much the whole pregnancy.

The knitted project I blogged about last time is still unfinished, although I've recently picked up the needles again and have made great strides there - one final push is all that needs now. It would have been finished already, but since I've been able to knit again I've been distracted with lots of mini-projects which I'll photograph and show next time. I may even have finished that project by then, too!
